This report updates a report from a year ago, and documents the ongoing shortage of affordable housing in the United States. This study looks at housing data from 1996 to 1998 for its analysis. The report has three key findings: time on waiting lists for public housing and Section 8 vouchers is growing; the numbers of families on waiting lists is increasing; and the lowest income families and seniors have limited options. To explain these findings, the report identifies four key factors: rents are outpacing income for poor Americans; the dramatic loss of affordable housing continues; federal support for affordable housing has been cut; and the expiration of project-based subsidies compounds the crisis.
